I love my 232. Crazy accurate. A bit more recoil than I expected, but this is my first and only .380. One unique feature: I have never gotten slide bite from any pistol (and I don't get slide bite from the 232), But I find that the slide seems to rub the back of my hand. Over a couple of magazines, it's not even noticeable. Over the course of 150 rounds at the range, the contact rubbed a raw spot on my hand. Still, since any defensive scenario that has you firing 150 rounds from a pocket pistol is likely a no-win endeavor anyway, I continue to love the 232 as an accurate, reliable, deep-concealable carry option.
